Hello everyone ! 

 

I just saw the Bling Ring this afternoon, here's a topic to talk about it !

 

Actually I didn't really apreciate the movie. I didn't like how Katie Chang (: Rebecca - main character) plays, I thought it was not convincing, pale, annoying. Maybe it's also what her character is about, but feels like every single smile is faked, and she never has any "real energy" to me, even though she should because she's at the origin of everything. 

The general tone of the movie was weird - sometimes you expect fun, a great dynamic, and it's just slow and mysterious. I though that maybe Sophia Copolla is trying to make us see, though slow scenes, how much the situation is out of control and how bad this all is. But it didn't work for me, I felt bored sometimes (Katie Chang's parts aren't my favorites as she didn't convinced me). 

 

Even though I didn't like the movie, I thought Emma's performance was brilliant !!! Haha Maybe I'm biased...

I didn't feel like Emma's character Nicki was a fake, I truly believed that she was quite stupid and genuine. It felt true to me, and every moment we could see Em on screen, it was funny. 

 

How about you ? What did you think of it ?

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with going alone. It's really not a big deal.

For sure, when you go with friends you don't talk during the film but after the movie, to discuss the different opinions.

Well you'll be able to talk about the movie here with us, so you won't be alone for this experience after all  :rolleye0012:

I always see movies alone doesnt bother me one bit!!

I have a son so when my hubby asks if I want some time off I'm practically running for the cinema before he has finished the sentence lol. So there is nothing creepy about it no one gives two hoots if you're alone!

I used to not go to films alone, but now I find it to be relaxing and a nice activity when I don't have anyone to do anything with. 

 

I actually might be able to swing an invite to a pre-screening on Wednesday, so I hope I am done all my packing and stuff by then so I can go.
